NATIONAL HISTORIC DISTRICT
Originally named Alabama Clrlj- Indnrtrlal
School and later Alabama College. thU
Institution was founded Oct. 12. 1896. by the
Alabama Uglslature. It was the atate college
for womeno until 1956. when It became
coeducational. In 1969 the name was changed
to the University of Montevallo. In Dec 1978
the central portion of the campus was listed"
in the National Register of Histprlc Places

and Reynolds Hall (leS""^
WELCOME TO UM,
a place where the beauty and charm of the past join with the dreams of
the present. What a perfect setting for new beginnings! Students arrive
on campus full of enthusiasm and expectations — hoping that all of
their dreams will be fulfilled. It is here that students face new challenges
and experiences that will create memories that will last forever.
The staff of the 48th edition of MONTAGE welcome you on your
journey through the year 1 988- 1 989. Our goal is to guide you through
this year of new beginnmgs. We will stop along our tour and look back
at the events that have shaped our lives. We hope that this journey will
bring back fond memories and form lasting impressions about your-
school, the University of Montevallo.

The University of Montevallo is not unfa-
miliar with changes. On the contrary, its
history shows very dramatic ones. UM first
opened its doors in 1 896 under the name
of Alabama College, a school for women.
Imagine the controversy in 1956 — Ala-
bama College actually allowed MENlo en-
roll. Can you believe it? Today it would be
difficult to imagine UM without men. How-
ever, it was quite a controversial issue in
the 50's. Perhaps one of the most signifi-
cant changes came in 1 969. Alabama Col-
lege became the University of Montevallo,
signifying our school's growth as an institu-
tion of higher learning.
UM continued in the tradition of changes
during the 88-89 school year. The number of
students increased tremendously due to the
elimination of the 2600 student limit on en-
rollment. The University also halted the con-
struction of a proposed athletic complex,
dedicated a new golf course, and appointed
Interim President John Stewart to the position
of President of UM. With the appointment of
President Stewart, the administration hoped
to bring ' 'A New Beginning" to the University
WHAT A DAY!
New beginnings often involve a huge amount of hiard work. Tfiis is
certainly the case at UM. On August 28, 1988, students began
arriving on campus. The scorching summer sun made the task of
moving into dorms a difficult and tiring one. Luckily, there were
many helpful people on hand to help make the experience as pain-
less as possible.
Moving into UM was made a little easier by the family and friends
who helped us carry our belongings up countless flights of stairs.
Fortunately, there was lots of free lemonade to satisfy our thirst after
the move was over.
The process of moving in was also made easier by the work of the
Hall Directors and Resident Assistants. These hard working individ-
uals helped coordinate the moving in process as well as answer
thousands of questions about dorm life.

UM's students see the campus from many
beautiful and exciting angles. These views are as
unique as the varied personalities of those peo-
ple who attend the University of Montevallo.
The University oi Montevdllo is well known for its
tradition of College Night (Purples — Upper Right
and Golds — Lower Left). In 1 988, the Purple Victory
Production, "The Perils of Nadine," had the honor of
winning the College Night competition. Another fas-
cinating production on campus was the Children's
Theatre's production of "Land of the Dragon" (Lower
The possibilities at UM are almost endless. Students
have a wide variety of activities in which to participate.
The University of Montevallo offers everything from
outdoor concerts, laser light shows, movies, athletics,
dances, and of course our beloved College Night —
the event that could be called the very heart and soul
of UM. Whatever a student's interest may be, UM has
Other activities included TV Production (Upper Left),
Spruce Up Day (Lower Left), a laser light show (Mid-
dle Right), and a stirring concert by Truth (Lower
April 13, 1989 was a special day at the
University of Montevallo. Not only was it
Honors Day, but it was also a day to help
those in need. Party in The Pasture was an
event organized by Nastaran Naseroleslam
assisted by SGA. Booths were donated by
various dorms in order to make money for
the Shelby County Emergency Relie
Fund. In addition, music was provided by
various area bands and dinner was served
by the Cafe.
The University of Montevallo's Homecoming
Celebration brings reunions of former classes.
UM's graduates return to Montevallo's beautiful
campus to relive memories and to meet with
friends from years past. These outstanding
graduates are the source of pride of the Univer-
sity of Montevallo.
The tradition of excellence continues with the
students of today. These energetic people add to
the unigue charm of our institution. It is the stu-
dent body that makes UM special.

The University of Montevallo's Cheer-
leading Squad provided motivation and
school spirit at all athletic events this year.
These dedicated students cheered the Fal-
cons to victory and consoled them in de-
feat. UM's Cheerleaders also helped pro-
mote excitement among the faithful fans of
the Falcon athletic program. Without the
spark of electricity created by these stu-
dents, athletics at Montevallo would cer-
tainly lose that competitive spirit.
The Pride of UM
Coach Rob Spivery's UM Falcon basketball team
ended an exciting season with a 23-5 record over-
all. The 23 wins tied the school record for victories
in one season. In addition, Chris Harrel and District
27 Player of the Year Bobby Joe Jackson were
named to the All-District 27 squad. For Coach Rob
Spivery and his Falcons, the 88-89 season was one
of success and pride.

Set New Record
The Lady Falcon basketball squad had quite a
year. These talented athletes finished the season
with a 19-10 record overall. Led by Coach Joe
Hagan, the Falcons set a new school record for
the most wins in one season. In addition, Falcon
stars Peggy Keebler, Betty Pincheon, Julee
Greenway, and Buffie Burson were named to
the All-District 27 team.
For UM Baseball Coach Bob Riesener, it was a year to remem-
ber. Coach Riesener saw win 600 with the defeat of Miles College
in April. With this win, he joined the elite of baseball. Only Coach
Rudy Abbott of Jacksonville State and former Coach Paul Nix of
Auburn have reached the 600 win mark.
For UM Sophomore Rusty Greer, this year was especially
memorable. As a Freshman, Greer placed All-District 27, All-
Area V, and Honorable Mention All American. In the Fall of
1988, he was chosen to play for Team USA at the 1988 Harbour
Tournament in Taipei, Taiwan. As a player for Team USA, Greer
also had an opportunity to travel with the squad during its 1 989
Summer tour of the United States.

The Lady Falcons Volleyball Team had quite an impressive
year. Not only did these talented athletes have a 41-7 record
during the 88-89 season, but they also placed fourth nationally
and received the national tournament's Sportmanship Award.
Individual team members Denise Heisler and Latanja Thomas
were named First Team All-Americans as well. In addition,
coach Judy Green had the distinction of being named the
South Region National Coach of the Year at the American
Volleyball Coaches Association's National Convention in Min-
neapolis, Minnesota. Congratulations on an outstanding sea-

What's It Gonna Be?
College Night 1989
Once again the University of Montevallo was filled witfi
cries of, "What's it gonna be?!" Yes, College Night fever
quickly spread to Purples and Golds alike in the annual
competition to see which side would have sweet victory.
To an outsider of the University of Montevallo, College
Night IS a concept that might seem a bit "weird." However,
as any person who has ever participated in this honored
tradition can tell you. College Night is more than just "a
couple of plays." On the contrary, it is far more! Perhaps Dr.
Lucille Gnffith said it best in her book, History oi Alabama
College, "If you have never lived through one, never cried,
laughed or sweated through one, know this. It is the crest of
the wave of college spirit. It is the high spot that will stand out
in your mind as meaning college when all the rest has faded"
(as stated by a former College Night leader in 1 93 1 ).
On Saturday, February 25, the long awaited day arrived. Purples
and Golds waited anxiously for the announcement of the winner of
College Night 1989. Joe Howard, SGA President had the privilege
of revealing the choice made by the secret judges. And the winner
was . . . Purples!!! The PV participants knew that the hard work was

The story begins in the parlor of Minnie Spry's Curl Up
and Dye Beauty Parlor. Here we learn that Nadine Fall-
well's Aunt Charlene has just been kidnapped. Later, we
find that Charlene and her husband, Bernard, have
planned the kidnapping in order to get Nadine's $1
million dollar trust fund.
"I have to pay a ransom for Aunt Charlene!'
Thomas Albright — "I'll save the day!'
"Happy ransom day!

Our hero, Thomas Albright, arrives to find out the truth
behind the kidnapping. He sees Nadine and falls in love.
Unfortunately, Bernard decides to kidnap Detective Al-
bright. Now poor Nadine doesn't have a date to her
"The Perils of Nadine (Bound for Glory)" presented by the
Purple Victory I Cast, had an original script based on a not so
original theme. Audiences never seem to tire of "love conquers

so that he can stop Bernard from

party. Charlene cannot allow Ber-
nard to steal her niece's rightful

anxiously awaits the delivery of

Luckily, Charlene and Detec-

with so little money. They are all to be commended for what I feel is a

The show takes place in the sorority house of Beta Theta
Psi set in Grand Prairie University, outside of Dallas, Texas.
Allyson Anderson is deeply in love with Sigma Phi Chuck
Callahan. Secretly he feels the same. However, Babs Bloom-
quist causes problems for the lovers.
Miss Twillingham remembers lost love in "Seasons.
"1 told you to watch out for Babs!"
"Howdy Ma'am! I'm a Sigma Phi!"
t * ^^
The brothers of Sigma Phi come to the sorority-
house to practice a skit. Babs steals Chuck's fraternity-
pin to make herself "irresistible" to all the guys on
campus. Unfortunately, all the Greeks think Chuck
and Babs are really going steady, including AUyson.
'You went and did it! Now you're gonna get it!"
Later that night, Chuck's frater-
nity brothers haze him for giving
Babs his fraternity pin. They then
leave Chuck outside the Beta The-
ta Psi Sorority House. When Ally-
son finds him, they both confess
their love for each other.
"The choreography in the Gold production was excel-
lent, especially in 'Season' and the Finale".

ment that President Kennedy has been shot. The lights fade
and each character reveals the changes in their lives after the

Just Grin and "BEAR" It!
Help! The phrase "a bear hug" is given a whole new twist in this scene. This student is definitely giving all to charity.
The Fall Semester of 1 988 was a semester to
remember. Who could forget the day the fra-
ternities wrestled a bear ... a what?
Several UM fraternities wrestled a ferocious
grizzly to benefit charity. Because of these
brave young men, area charities received
Myrick Gym has been the siting for many athletic events. Howev-
er, the day the bear arrived was probably the most unusual. Many
students (especially the participants) will remember this day for
many years to come.
The musical ministry of Truth came to the Uni-
versity of Montevallo during the Fall Semester.
UM's Baptist Student Union and Student Gov-
ernment Association joined together to make
this concert a success.
During the performance, several students
were invited onto the stage to sing with the choir.
Needless to say, Truth's powerful message re-
mained on the minds of students long after the
night was over.
Once again Cobblestone Productions brought to UM a
new and exciting afternoon of entertainment. Blizzard of
Bucks gave a few lucky students a chance to win extra
money in the Blizzard of Bucks money machine. Onlookers
cheered the contestants on their attempt to grab as much
money as possible. The afternoon gave UM students a
chance to relax and forget about classes for a few hours.

Light Up the Sky"
On April 19-22, Moss Hart's "Light
Up the Sky" was presented in Reynolds
Theater. The play was an amusing com-
edy about a Broadway company that
opened a show "out of town" in Boston.
The eccentric characters in Hart's fic-
tional theatrical company made this
production one to remember.
A Sticky Situation
Beware of Senior March
Each fall, on a particularly dark and ominous
evening, the Tower chimes the dreaded song
"Pray for the dead and the dead will pray for
you." Then begins the Senior March. Freshmen
are captured by the Seniors and initiated into
UM by the liberal use of shaving cream, deter-
gent, chocolate syrup, and eggs. However, once
initiated, these ladies may participate again their
Senior year. Only this time, a midnight trip to the
showers will not be necessary.
Seniors march around the Tower as eager Freshmen
await their fate.
Here we see various stages of the stickiest tradition on
campus. Freshmen are covered with every type of
sticky, gooey food imaginable. Welcome to UM!
Is This The Cafe?
Each semester the cafeteria becomes a
showplace. Students enter a world of ele-
gance — complete with balloons, candle-
light, tablecloths and fabulous food. "Some-
thing Different for Dinner" allows students to
get a break from the usual routine of cafeteria
life to have a unique dining experience. Stu-
dents certainly agree that this event is the
highlight of cafeteria dining.
Something different for Dinner is a special time for all
— individual students, couples, and families.
Groups of friends join togetfier for SDFD to enjoy the food, tfie atmo-
sphere, and the spirit of the occasion. This spirit cannot be compared to
any other cafeteria event — until the next semester.
Each yedr, the University of Montevallo
holds an information fair. This year was no
exception. Booths lined the cafeteria — filled
with students, faculty, and staff waiting to an-
swer a wide variety of questions about clubs,
organizations, Greeks, and special services
offered at UM. Many students took advantage
of this unique opportunity to learn more
about what the University of Montevallo has
to offer. Hopefully, these students left the fair
with a better idea of what UM is all about.
(Above) The Information Fair provided an
exellent opportunity for students to find

During the Fall Semester, "The Glass Menagerie" was pre-

portrayal of the Tennessee William's classic play of the Wing-

young girl who cannot escape her obsession with her "crip-
pled" leg. This obesession leads her into a separation from
reality and into the fragile world of her collection of glass.

Spruce-up day gave UM students a chance to take part in the Founders
Day celebration (top — left and right). Founders Day would not be
complete without a song from UM's choir (above). Seniors found joy in
their official robing ceremony (right).
Each year at the University of Monte-
vallo, students and faculty celebrate the
founding of UM. The 92nd annual obser-
vance of Founders Day was held October
13, 1988. Activities included the annual
spruce-up day, the robing of Seniors cere-
mony, and an afternoon picnic on the
quad featuring the music of Telluride.
Students were allowed to participate in a vari-
ety of Founders Day activities. From the cere-
mony in Palmer Hall (top — left) to an after-
noon picnic with Telluride (bottom — left,
center — right), UM students enjoyed a wel-
come break from classes.
The 1989 pageant was held in Palmer
Auditorium and hosted by 1988 Miss
Alabama Jenny Jackson. Freshman An-
gela McClure assumed the title of Miss
Montevallo after Carol Ann Foley was
asked to relinquish her crown because she
was not a U.S. citizen. However, Miss Foley
was allowed to keep her scholarship for
winning the talent portion of the pageant.

It's Squeal Day!
Over one hundred anxious young ladies wait outside of Palmer Hall to
receive their bids for sororities (top). Once bids were announced, the
new pledges excitedly "squealed" and ran to greet their new sisters
(bottom — left).
The beginning of the school year once again was filled with squeals of
delight as rushees became pledges during UM's annual Squeal Day. Rushees
excitedly gathered on the steps of Palmer Hall, hoping to receive a bid from
their favorite sorority. Gradually, the bids were given. Eager new pledges
rushed to greet their active sisters and begin their "new life" as a Greek.

Since that time, they have added
their many talents and achieve-

Honors Day was held April 1 3, 1 989. The Universi-
ty of Montevallo recognized those students whose
achievements in academics and leadership were ex-
ceptional. Morning convocation was held in Palmer
Hall to honor students and their families. Dr. Pat Ernest
was the speaker for the occasion. Her words inspired
many students to continue their guest for excellence.
That afternoon, individual colleges held ceremonies
to recognize students in each college.
Graduation is a day that students strive toward
with anticipation, excitement, and joy. After years
of hard work, that special day finally arrives. It is this
moment that will create a memory that lasts forever.
Over 1 30 students made the dream of graduation a
reality during Fall Commencement.
Vacca Professor Dr. Ndiawar Saar was the key-
note speaker. Dr. Saar, UM's visiting scholar from
Senegal, West Africa, stressed the importance of
foreign language, intercultural studies, geography,
and literature in today's world. Through these, man
can gain a better understanding of other cultures.

Graduation is the crest of the collegiate experience. Over 200 University of
Montevallo students became a part of Spring Commencement exercises, the
first spring graduation in over ten years to be held indoors. Unfortunately, rain
forced the ceremony to be held in Palmer Auditorium rather than on the front
lawn of Flowerhill. Hov/ever, the joy of the graduates and their famlies were not
ended by the unusual circumstances.
Former Alabama Governor Albert P. Brewer was the speaker. He told
students that Alabamians should not be satisfied with what we are. We should
look toward what we can be. Brewer stressed that the solution lies with our
graduates, the leaders of the future.

A smile, a laugh, a tear
A friend for all the years
Memories of happy carefree days
Memories of other less joyful ways
But through it all — happy or sad
I've always been more than glad —
And it's important to say
That you've given me more than I could
You'll always be a special friend
That no time or distance could ever end.
It seems wherever we go
People come into our lives —
Or go out of it — leaving us only a memory . . .
Touching us where we can feel it,
And we weren't through knowing them.
How do we halt our lives to gather and keep those
That we've known and loved?
How do we know when we are seeing you for the last
And how do you keep fairy tales from losing their magic?
And so ends an exciting chapter of your lives.
But also begins another chapter.
And though we must part, we know we can always return
To flip fondly through the gold bond leaves of our memory.
There remains so much to say, yet nothing that really needs saying
You already know. Forgive the tears . . . they are only bits of selfishness
That can be contained no longer.
We only wish to keep you a little longer within the boundaries of our
And so, thank you, for touching our lives —
For letting us know and love you.
New beginnings must come to an end as another year has
pased. It was year of laughter, joy, and yes, sometimes sor
row. Good times and bad, we've shared them all. But, dc
new beginnings really come to an end? We don't think sc
— See you next year!
